Toothbrush maracas, an umbrella with plant pots, a tea cup cooling fan and the reverse bungee. "Go straight off the wall," said his father, and Dominic Wilcox listened. This short film follows the London artist/inventor/designer on his quest to come up with something creative every day. The result is a font of productivity as he transforms the mundane and ordinary into surprises, wonders and, sometimes, just plain absurdities.

Sun Dog

Sun Dog

Film Screening — Duration: 6 mins

Man’s best friend has never been truer than in this endearing, intimate portrait of skier Santiago Guzman and his loyal canine companion Conga. Living deep in the mountains of Patagonia, the pair spends idyllic days scouting big lines on the steep Argentine mountains together from their base in a backcountry hut known as Refugio Frey. The snapshots of their life together are brief and beautiful: Conga’s coat ruffling in the wind as she chases a ball of snow, a spindrift cresting over a ridgeline as the duo get ready to descend, Conga bounding after Guzman in an effort that is both graceful and goofy. The heart can’t help but swell in this short portrait of fidelity, love and snow.

After developing a blood infection at 9 months of age, Vasu Sojitra lost his right leg in an amputation. That didn’t stop him from discovering — and pursuing whole heartedly — an unbounded love of skiing that shaped his life. Today, Sojitra shreds bumps, hucks rocks, plunders powder and, with the help of outriggers and incredible will, accesses backcountry lines. Out on a Limb is a short profile of an individual proving that disability can be a mere hiccup instead of an impediment to your dreams.
